4000csQ Hard starting problem when warm...

Hello out thar in Q -land...

Lately I've started having a starting (I know, I know) prblem with my 4k.
When the engine is cold, like first thing in the morning, the thing starts
right up, like almost with a full rev on the starter and runs perfect, smooth
etc etcs... However, after it's been driven a while, if I shut it down and 
attempt a re-start it truns and turns and turns but doesn't catch. If I keep
doing the turn key, no catch, turn key, no catch, turn key, no catch, turn
key, CATCH !  Eventually it will start but latley it's been no catch-ing
more than CATCH.  In all honesty I haven't even gotten around looking at
anyting yet but I'm curious if anyone out there has any words of wisdom in
regards to where to look first ???

Thanks in advance, Tom.
